The Chief is selling his 1986 championship ring. The current high-bid is $18K.
“This size 13, 14k gold player’s ring weighs 39 grams. The top panel reads “BOSTON CELTICS WORLD CHAMPIONS” surrounding a green enameled shamrock logo and a diamond encrusted Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. Fifteen smaller round-cut diamonds make up the base and a .33-carat round-cut diamond sits at the top. The ring has a total diamond weight of approximately .50 carats. The right panel reads “PARISH” in relief above a casted image of the Celtics leprechaun logo, “16 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS” and another banner that reads “PRIDE”. The left panel reads “1986″ and features a laurelled and green enameled NBA logo along with another banner that reads “TEAMWORK”. The inside of the ring is stamped “LGB 14K”. The ring is in MINT condition and is accompanied by a LOA from Hall of Famer Robert Parish.
Parish auctioned his 1981 championship ring in May, and it sold for $45k. It saddens me that some of our favorite pro athletes have to sell they personal awards and memorabilia due to personal money issues.
